Sipcam Oxon S.p.A. announced that it has completed the acquisition of certain industrial and logistics assets from Odom Industries (Mississippi), through its U.S. affiliate Sipcam Agro USA.

The acquisition strengthens Sipcam Oxon's presence in the United States, where the company has a distribution subsidiary, Sipcam Agro USA, with annual sales of over US$ 100 million. The acquisition gives Sipcam Agro USA a full integration along the value chain, with its own formulation and logistic assets.

The transaction involved the acquisition of the industrial assets of the Shubuta (Mississippi) logistics center and the Waynesboro (Mississippi) production site, which is dedicated to the formulation of agrochemicals with a total workforce of approximately 140 people. The Waynesboro production site is equipped with various formulation technologies, primarily to produce herbicides.

"The acquisition of these assets from Odom Industries Inc. is an important milestone for our growth in the United States," said Nadia Gagliardini, President of Sipcam Oxon Group. "This transaction will allow us to consolidate our presence in the U.S. agrochemical, biostimulants and biorationals markets."

The acquisition of these industrial assets represents an important step in Sipcam Oxon's growth strategy in the United States. The company intends to become a leading contract manufacturer in the agrochemical sector, providing American customers with its innovative know-how and production capacity.

Sipcam Oxon S.p.A. is an independent Italian company founded in 1946. With consolidated revenues of €720 million in 2022 and a workforce of around 1,000 employees worldwide, it is today a group active in the research, development, registration, production, and distribution of "off-patent" agrochemicals, biostimulants, biorationals, specialty fertilizers, chemical intermediates, and seeds.
